It is no mean feat for a stallion to fill out a trifecta especially when he’s only ever served small books.
Regally bred Redente is said stallion and he’s overcoming the odds to upgrade his mares and grab the attention of breeders.
The son of champion sire of sires Redoute’s Choice and Group 1 mare Stella Cadente covered a book of 80 last year whereas the most he had served in previous seasons was just 49.
What breeders want is results and Redente is getting them – his latest success an Albury trifecta last Thursday when Grey Strike led throughout to defeat Cheeky Chinchilla and Why Do We Do It in the Daro Twin City Hcp (900m).
“It is very satisfying to see Redente record his own bit of history at Albury,” Riverbank Farm studmaster Russell Osborne said.
“He’s been a quiet achiever although people are really starting to take notice of him now.
Redente has sired 24 individual winners and they show plenty of natural pace, a case in point being Stella The Boss who has scored front-running victories at Ballarat (5 lengths) and Sandown Hillside at her last two starts.
Billabong Babe has been another good performer for Redente. The Riverbank Farm homebred won at Moonee Valley last time in while stablemate Squeaky Squirrel is close to adding another win this prep after a Wodonga victory in November.
Redente stands for a $3,300 (inc gst) service fee at Benalla-based Riverbank Farm this year and breeders can contact Osborne on 0423 768 155.
